I live near Louisville, Ky and see TV commercials all the time for a local Grocer there who advertises get $5.00 cash back if you spend $50.00 or more even with your EBT. This is clearly illegal you aren’t supposed to turn EBT into cash. It’s also illegal to buy EBT dollars from someone who gets the benefits. When the EBT card came out it was supposed to stop the illegal sale of Food Stamps. Clearly the lifelong recipients have had ample time to figure out how to work the system. The only welfare handout we cant get them to accept is an education and a job.

Had lunch with a vendor from Massachusetts a couple of months ago and we got on this topic. I told him how something like 95% of the EBT card users which I stood behind in the check-out line not only bought food I couldn't afford, but drove away in cars I couldn't afford either.

He told me about a Masshole woman who was so anxious to get cash for her EBT card that she bought deposit beverage cans and put full cans through a recycle for cash machine and shut it down due to mechanical failure. I was incredulous until I looked up the true story.

At least the slackards in Pennsylvania aren't so damn lazy that they won't even drink the stuff in the cans first.

You haven’t even gotten to the 20-30% of the balance on all cards that the banks steal by charging ridiculous fees. Someone needs to look at Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. That is the real crime compared to the store owners.
